My connection to Germany

One of my old friend’s favorite film was German title: Der Himmel über Berlin, English title: Wings of Desire directed by Vim Venders. As a college student, I did’t understand a thing about the film except for feeling this strong heartache and empathy for the main character. I didn’t know it was by Vim Venders. Maybe I should …

Vintage vinyl records shopping before heading over to the Berlin wall. (To be honest I don’t know much about vintage records. Actually buying an old ecord player is on my wish list but I enjoy just looking at some of the designs. You can also find some fashion inspirations from these!) ベルリンの壁に行く前に腹ごしらえとヴィンテージレコードショッピング。 (実はいつか古いレコードプレイヤーは欲しいと思ってるけど。正直、ヴィンテージレコードは全然詳しくない。でも、古いレコードのジャケットはデザインも斬新で見てるだけでファッションやスタイルのインスピレーションになるので好き。) The ownder …

to Berlin

I know I know… It’s a bit too late for the New year’s eve post. It’s one of the things I’m learning about blogging but it was too good to let them pass without posting. (I also have too many from London I haven’t post…!) わかっております。今更大晦日のポストなんて、、、って感じだけど、ボツるにはあまりにももったいないのでポストしちゃいます。1つのポストに時間かけすぎなのか、全然思い通りにアップできてない。(ロンドンのポストなんてまだまだいっぱいあるのに!) Leaving Heathrow airport and heading to Berlin. ヒースロー空港から、いざベルリンへ! Black …

A few more days until the 87th Oscar night. I love awards season. Simply because there are many good films around that are worth watching. I love the fact Wes Anderson’s “The Grand Budapest Hotel” is nominated for the best picture this year! My personal favorite was Eddie Redmayne in “Theory of Everything.” He was …

New obsessions & must haves

I recently read somewhere online about how incredible this blue can of NIVEA cream is. So I tried. Oh my god…it is….AMAZING!!! Apparently some of it’s ingredients are very similar to La Mer women’s cream! And it costs about $4~$5! I’ve only used it for a few times but my skin is definitely brighter and …

Post cards from Tokyo

I ate so GOOD.  I usually do eat well whenever I’m Japan. Pretty much anything you eat in Japan is all decent and good but STEAK HOUSE Hama was pretty extraordinary. From simple asparagus to the sauce…oh and that steak! Mouth watering, juicy steak that melts in your mouth. It was for sure one of …

The Grand Sumo Tournament

Such a treat to be invited to the New Year Grand Sumo tournament in Ryogkoku.  I used to watch Sumo with my grand parents on TV but never been to a live Sumo before. For this tournament, not only Yokozuna Hakuho secured sole ownership of the all-time record with his 33rd win, he finished with perfect …

Shimokita Nostalgia

I grew up a few stations away from Shimokitazawa aka Shimokita.シモキタ。下北。 This town has changed a lot since. Yet some things are still the same. My parents used to take my sister and I to Antique shops, Flea markets and garage sales. I used to hate it as a kid.  “You will grow to love …

Winter light in Tokyo

Soaking up the warmth of winter light in Tokyo. While exploring up and coming Tokyo fashion scenes in Harajuku, “Harsh, cold, winter light creates the most beautiful photos” said my friend, the photographer.  This ALLSAINTS coat fits me perfectly as if it were immaculately tailored just for me.  Also my Oliver Goldsmith Manhattan sunglasses’  subtle leopard frame matches …

Weather has been so nice here in Los Angeles. So I thought maybe we can take a little break from some of the London posts and put these up instead. After traveling in cold Europe, it is so refreshing to come back to this warm LA weather. I’ve been layering in London and had to …

London calling…!

A week after I get back to Los Angeles. I get a call from different job asking me to fly to London. My answer? Well, of course! It’s funny how things work sometimes, about a month ago I’ve never been to Europe and now I’m flying there two months in a row!! I can’t really …
